51yo starting up again
Having just turned 51 today and out of running for awhile. I am literally starting from zero. I understand running by feel though I may at first limit myself with a heart rate monitor at Maffetone HR zone to curb any over enthusiam. From what I have read Lydiard discusses building up to on time basis a three hour run once that schedule is mastered switch over to the hundred miles a week. I have the time to do this. My question is am I best to do it that way or cycle through ie do what I can doing the 10 weeks marathon phase then move through each phase and progressivley build through each successive completion of a full macrocycle?
